The noise grows louder as he gets closer.
Ping … clack. Ping, ping … clack, clack.
As he turns the corner and passes through double doors, there it is: A wall of pinball machines decked out in all their vintage glory, with frenetic lights, funky music and flashy cartoon characters — the bells and whistles he loves. He steps up to one of his favorites, the 1967 “Melody” machine, coils back the plunger and starts pressing those flipper buttons like there’s no tomorrow. With each ring-a-ding-ding, he bounces back to the fond memories of his childhood.”
